A look at life in the beach cities of Los Angeles during the time of the Coronavirus pandemic. I wanted to do more than document the empty scenes of this historic time by exploring the themes of loneliness and isolation brought on by social distance. In addition, I wanted to inspire hope for the future by ending with some old footage of better times.

The cooperative effort throughout our communities has been astonishing. My hope is that we will continue to work in patience and unity as we cautiously make plans to open up. Let’s keep up the good fight, balancing our social and economic needs with advice of doctors and scientists. We all know the drill - wear your mask, wash your hands, give some space. These small efforts can make a big difference, so keep it up, Beach Cities!

Filmed in compliance with California’s Stay-at-Home order and all local regulations and closures. Responsible social distance was maintained and PPE was used as needed.
